Galfan Coated Steel for Automotive Applications 860658

Galfan is a new generation zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating for steel offering opportunities for greater fabrication flexibility and upgraded corrosion performance in automotive applications. The formability of Galfan is equivalent to that of electrogalvanized steel, based on laboratory tests and automotive component fabrication. Corrosion resistance of Galfan exceeds that of hot dip and electrogalvanized, including performance in automotive industry tests. Automotive production applications for deep drawn and stamped components in France and Germany are based on the ability to meet dual performance requirements for upgraded formability and corrosion resistance. First U.S. Galfan applications are on 1985 model Ford cars and light trucks for transmission oil cooler line and power steering line tubing.
